Eddy the Sock Teddy

Meet Eddy Teddy!

It's amazing some of the things you can find in the pound shops in town. I'd trawled them all this week looking for bits n bobs for Jack's homework project, and stumbled across this Sock Teddy Kit. I figured "for a pound... what can I lose if it's just tat?"

It's not just tat.

It's a Crafty Kidz Make Your Own Rainbow Teddy Bear. I'd share a link with you for them, but I cannot find them on Google at all. The kits are for sale all over eBay though.

In the kit you get a sock, some stuffing, thread, needle, and the buttons for the belly, eyes, and nose. And very simple instructions.

I spent a very chilled evening sat with my feet up and the telly on, snipping, sewing, and stuffing. And voilà! One cute little bear. Although - as someone on Facebook said - it looks less like a bear and more like Henry's Cat on Acid. That suits me fine though!

The kids adore it! I have been ordered to return to the pound shop and buy another 3 kits so that they can all have one. Sadly there were none left. But I do now have the instructions... and kids who lose socks ALL THE TIME making an almost infinitely sustainable supply of odd socks. I even have a big bag of stuffing left over from a previous craft project. So all I need to ebay now are some cute buttons!

Prepare yourself for more sock critters popping up on the blog between now and Christmas!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
